Lindsay Lohan’s eHarmony Ad, Plus Paris Hilton & James Franco Also Self-Satirize.
If the best kind of friends are the ones who know how to laugh at themselves, Lindsay Lohan is totes my new BFF. Sure, the girl might be nutso, especially after her split from Samantha Ronson, but I’ll take a dose of the crazy if it makes me snarf my Diet Coke with glee.
In this new parody of those can’t-escape-‘em eHarmony ads, LiLo puts herself on the
meat singles market, spritzing herself with room spray as she describes herself as:
- “single, I think”
- a “workaholic, a shopaholic, and according to the state of California, an alcoholic”
- looking for someone to “spend the rest of my life with, or at least the rest of my probation”
- looking for someone who wants to “crash a few parties and a car or two”
She joins other recent celebs who saw their star rise by poking fun at their inflated egos.
I was never a Paris Hilton fan til she made this campaign spoof after John McCain compared Obama to a bunch of tabloid celebs. Hilton tells us, “I’m a celebrity, too. Not from the olden days, and I’m not promising change like that other guy. I’m just hot.” She goes on to sound totally sane and smart, suggesting an energy policy that makes actual sense. “I’ll see you at the debates, b*tches.” — I wish!
In Episode One of his “Acting with James Franco” series, the hottie actor-turned-writer teaches us the secret to crying onscreen: sense memory. Franco makes fun of both himself and every lame-o acting class you’ve ever endured just to get to the cast party with the free beer. The lesson includes a montage of famous Franco weepies from “Spiderman” to “Milk” to “Freaks and Geeks,” and his own memories of putting his cat to sleep. His brother Dave has, like, zero recall and thinks James is pretty dumb.
